GIRLS TRIP just had an excellent opening weekend in the US and Universal Pictures Australia has announced that they will be releasing it locally on 31 August.
Following its debut at the American Black Film Festival in Miami, director Malcolm D. Lee’s film opened to rave reviews and interviews in the US this week. Starring Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tiffany Haddish, and Queen Latifah, it follows four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Sisterhoods are rekindled, and wild sides are rediscovered.
The film has already got a rep for being a boundary-pushing and edgy comedy, with Variety favourably comparing it to Bridesmaids and other recent comedies. It opened to $30 million in the US against films like Dunkirk and Valerian, which is an impressive feat given its $19 million budget.
